Travelers Wanted: Sailing Indonesia in June

Travelers Wanted: Sailing Indonesia in June
This June we have a special sailing of our Indonesian Cruise & The Mighty Orangutans of Borneo and we have a woman from Alaska looking for a travel companion to join her on this adventure. She works as a Nurse-Midwife with the Inuipiaq and would love another likeminded traveler to join her.  More About the Trip: Sail on this 12-day wildlife voyage which combines a gentle river cruise through the forests of Kalimantan in Central Boreno with a sea cruise on board a traditionally built ironwood pinisi schooners. Kalimantan’s meandering rivers remain the best way to travel through the hinterland of Borneo, with its wealth of ecological and cultural treasures that survive deep within the rainforest jungle. This is the perfect way to see proboscis monkeys and Asia's only great ape, the Orangutan. On the sea cruise takes you through the panorama of islands to see the legendary Komodo Dragons, remote beaches, quiet...

Your Serengeti Safari and The Great Migration: A month-by-month guide

Your Serengeti Safari and The Great Migration: A month-by-month guide
The Serengeti: no other place on Earth is more synonymous with an African safari. The name alone conjures up images of vast plains teeming with exotic wildlife. The Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania is home to one of the most spectacular mammal migrations on Earth. This park is over 5,700 square miles (about the size of Connecticut) with the great Serengeti Ecosystem about twice that size. Each year, an astounding 1.5 million blue wildebeests and more than 200,000 zebra trace a clockwise migration loop through the greater Serengeti ecosystem in search of better grazing and water sources. If all of these wildebeest and zebra were to each run in front of your Land Rover at 1 per second, it would take almost 3 weeks for all of them to cross the road! Over the course of the full migratory loop, the animals can cover up to 1,800 miles – that’s...

10 Reasons Why You Can and Should Climb Kilimanjaro versus Mount Rainier

10 Reasons Why You Can and Should Climb Kilimanjaro versus Mount Rainier
A volcano is a volcano right? WRONG! Kilimanjaro is quite a different mountain than Mount Rainier. Here are 10 reasons why you can and should climb Kilimanjaro with Wildland Adventures instead of Mount Rainier on your own: 10) Climbing Kilmanjaro is non-technical – Kili requires no technical climbing gear. Warm clothes, a good sleeping bag and pad and a sturdy pair of hiking or mountaineering boots are as technical as it gets. Contrast that with Rainier where you’ll need ropes, harnesses, helmets, crampons, ice axes and full set of mountaineering skills and training including glacier travel and crevasse rescue. If that doesn’t convince you, the oldest person to climb Kili was 84. A regular exercise routine and time spent hiking uphill are all that you’ll need to do to get in shape for Kili. 9) Kili is in a spectacular setting – Kili is surrounded by some of the greatest places...
